Climbing Access & Stewardship Committee Interest Form

If you are interested in volunteering as a member of the organization-wide Climbing Access & Stewardship Committee, fill out this form and we will forward it to the volunteer committee chair so they can review it and respond. This committee invites a total of 7 new members to join annually for a 2-year term.

The Climbing Access & Stewardship Committee (ASC) will take inventory of our annual footprint in all climbing areas, particularly high-use climbing areas, and make recommendations to minimize our footprint where feasible. This may include a reduction in maximum party size in some of the most popular climbing areas. It may also include working with the Curriculum Committee to add low impact recreation training components where needed. The ASC will also work in partnership with land managers and organizations like Washington Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund to identify and execute on stewardship needs at our crags and alpine environments. The ASC will work to stay apprised of current issues in public lands in our region, poised to build a strong, informed coalition among our members and partners to protect the conservation of and access to our climbing areas. Additionally, the ASC will partner with organizations like the Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition to identify potential new climbing areas, work with land managers for access, and develop those areas with the human power of our climbing members.

Thank you for your interest!
